How many of us have boxes hidden away with old family photos or draws full of those packets that we used to pick up from the chemist of our developed holiday photos?
Well as a scrapbooker and Project Lifer, I'm always conscious of sharing memories taken by us, but even those, are often put onto layouts and then filed away in albums.
So at the little house, I wanted those memories and especially the ones that were taken and made at the house all those years ago, to be available and accessible to all those that visit.
Firstly we contacted family members and asked if we could scan in old family photos, and then printed them out, and now keep them in this glass bowl on the side.
I can honestly say, everyone that comes to the house loves going through the bowl and reliving those family memories, and so often we find out new stories that we've never heard before.
I've also asked family members to write down who is in the photo, so that we never forget. Its a joy spending time rummaging through the bowl and looking back through old photos.
I've actually decided that I'm going to print out some of Mum and Dad and include them in the bowl, even though they never got to visit the house, I want them to be part of the little house too.
